a tooth in the poop

MB asks:

My 5 year old daughter just lost her first tooth. And, she swallowed it around noon on Wed. She had a bowel movement several hours later that was flushed. Since then, she had a bowel movement Thurs. night and Fri. a.m., in which the tooth did not appear. Has it likely to have already passed the first time...or still to come?

MB, thanks for the question!

It likely will make an appearance within 48 hours. However, poo-smashing is pretty disgusting, and the tooth won't hurt anything even if it "lingers" in it's temporary home. All will come out in the end. I wouldn't even bother looking for it, myself. The tooth fairly sure as hell doesn't want THAT one.

Go on and give her a buck. That's my advice.

Please be advised that I am only a Poonurse. I am NOT a medical doctor. Any advice I give should be taken moderate skepticism. Please consult a REAL medical doctor if you feel you have a serious medical condition.

Got a question for her?

When I was 8, I met a girl that was 6 and said she lost a tooth and ate it. She said it was in her poop the next day...

Yeah? When I was six I used to hold blocks up to my butt and say "See this block?" right before I dropped it.

I found Jesus! He was behind the sofa the whole time!

Wouldn't the stomach acids disolve it?

I actually ate lego blocks many times on dares and for fun, they would come out in a day or two none the worse for wear.

Kids swallow the craziest things.
Pennies, legos, small nuts (the kind that go with bolts)...
and of course, teeth.

AC, unless someone bit your ass, I doubt that "a tooth in the poop" is your problem. I suggest that you go to the Pooping Health section and read up on "My Butt Is Leaky" and "Blood In Poop".

That turd had teeth, literally.

i recently had a very expensive crown (fake tooth) put on with temporary dental cement (so my dentist could check the fit and bite with the opposing teeth before using permanent adhesive). Last night, i was enjoying this wonderful bacon mushroom burger. A couple hours later, my tongue discovered i was short 1 tooth. Poop Patrol has begun. I have 2 questions: (1) how long might it take that tooth to pass -- it's a first molar, if that affects the answer? and (2) since post-poop #1 contained mushrooms and portions of a cashew nut snack but no tooth, is is logical that these foods made The Journey faster? Here's hoping #2 is the charm.

The tooth eventually comes out in the end. The human digestive system disposes those that it cannot digest.

Yeah? Well, how about a glass eye, or three?

The proper order is kiss me, then go smell the other dog or cat's butt. I cannot stress this enough.
